“The second quarter of 2016 shows that the logistics real estate market in Central and Eastern Europe is growing steadily and offering encouraging prospects. There is a growing demand for logistics space and, consequently, the occupancy rate across our portfolio is on the increase, reaching nearly 95 percent,” said Martin Polak, senior vice president and regional head for Prologis CEE.“The expected growth in e-commerce and the consequent increase in logistics space occupancy rates has become a reality. A growing number of our customers are companies from that sector, which speaks of the quality and suitable location of Prologis facilities.” 

With its active engagement in four CEE countries and a portfolio totalling 4.3 million square metres, Prologis is the leading provider of distribution facilities in Central and Eastern Europe (as of 30th June 2016).
